IE Business School has been ranked the No. 1 business school in the world by the QS Distance Online MBA Ranking, an international survey conducted by QS Intelligence Unit.

The ranking examines the quality of online, distance and blended MBA programs, and is based on criteria that include the employability of graduates, student profiles, levels of diversity, faculty, academic experience and international accreditations of the MBA program.

The ranking reflects the fact that in 2008 4.4% of MBA program candidates were interested mainly in online and distance MBAs, rising to 15.6% in 2012. Nunzio Quacquarelly, editor of the Top MBA Careers Guide, said that the attraction of this type of MBA is growing among candidates and recruiters, who recognize the value of such programs run by prestigious schools. “This new ranking provides a snapshot of a sector that is evolving fast.
